Re: [TinyPICO/ESP32] TinyPICO is live and available for purchase!

Yeah, there are quite a few people working on shields, though I am not sure if/how they will all be released. The ones I know of include: - Temp/Humidity/Proximity - Music/Audio/FX - Power management The design files for TinyPICO and the shields we make are all open source and are available here. ht...

Re: [TinyPICO/ESP32] TinyPICO is live and available for purchase!

What's special about this board , yes somewhat tiny but only 14 pins broken out and very pricey at $26 ??? looks like another custom cult following for fan boys. Obviously can't compete with volume products from China. Mini TTGO board with all pins broken out for $4.66. With shipping you still get ...

Re: Introducing the TinyPICO

I've not had a chance to take a breadboard shot yet, but here is a shot of TinyPICO next to some other popular ESP based dev boards...

Re: Introducing the TinyPICO

Congratulation you guys ! This is looking really good. Registered for the sale... One suggestion on a photo: how about a top-down photo showing the module plugged into a breadboard? perhaps better than a country-specific coin for trying to illustrate the compact module size? Is it possible to relea...

Re: rshell - Remote Shell

Just to clarify rshell is a tool for managing the filesystem on the device and accessing its REPL. In normal use you write code on a PC and use rshell to copy the script to the device. Using rshell 's REPL you run and test your code. It is a powerful utility and it's well worth studying the docs to...

Re: MicroPython version 1.10 released

Just for clarity, the external SPI RAM support on the ESP port in 1.10 ONLY works on WROVER and will go into a crash/reboot cycle on a WROOM32 or PICO-D4 board if you flash it. Support for WROOM32 and PICO-D4 will come in MP when it moves to the latest IDF. So if you are wanting to play with the SPI...

Re: rshell - Remote Shell

Ok, I am now using a combo of rshell and pyboard as I still need to copy over a bunch of files to the TinyPICO after the firmware is flashed, and couldn't see a way of doing a file copy with pyboard directly. Using pyboard and directly inserting code via REPL reduced my overall flash time by 5 secon...

Re: rshell - Remote Shell

I think @Roberthh is right: pyboard.py is your way forward. rshell is a command line utility and is not really intended to be imported into Python code. You might like to look at run-tests which is the Python script for running the MicroPython test suite. This enables tests to be run on the Pyboard...

Re: rshell - Remote Shell

Ok, I got it connecting in min.main() by pre-setting the default port in the env from rshell import main from rshell import pyboard import os os.environ['RSHELL_PORT'] = "/dev/ttyUSB0" main.main() print ( "Num devices: " + str(main.num_devices())) But it still stops at the rshell command prompt afte...
